Life And Nothing More is a beautiful and intimate piece of work, much like Moonlight or Boyhood. Unlike a lot of movies we see today, it is entirely focused on its characters and how they operate in the unfair system around them. Regina is a single mother who has a complicated relationship with her son, and their dynamic is raw and heartbreaking. It is obvious that Regina cares deeply for her son but she is unable to help him in his run-ins with the law and own emotional struggle. It is striking to me that the camera almost acts as a character just observing what is happening. There is no crazy editing or direction style and it's like we are in the moment with these characters, feeling what they are feeling. It is a must see if you like deeply moving portrayals of honest real life people.
